Last month the ASU wrote to CEO Rebecca McKenzie requesting that the provisions of the Enterprise Agreement (EA) from last year be applied to employees in advance of approval of the agreement by the Fair Work Commission (FWC).
At this point in time, we do not have a response from the City of Glen Eira.
Last week, the FWC wrote to the City of Glen Eira highlighting a number of areas of concern and seeking a response from the employer. You can download this email here.
While we are unsure as to the approach that is to be taken by the City of Glen Eira, the ASU feels it is important for union members to know what is going on behind the scenes.
Given that it has been a number of months since the EA was lodged in the FWC, and with staff growing increasingly frustrated as time drags on, the ASU has requested that the CEO apply the EA to employees as per the following:
- that the wage increase be paid to employees effective from July 2018;
- that back-pay be paid to employees (including adjustments for superannuation, allowances, overtime worked since July, 2018, etc.);
- that the EA is to be apply to employees (as if it were approved by the FWC).
The ASU believes that employees shouldn’t be disadvantaged any longer and that the good faith shown by employees, in overwhelmingly supporting the proposed EA with 93.4% voting in-favour of the EA, should be repaid by the City of Glen Eira.
